Episode 35: Where the Gospel Meets Law Enforcement & Ethnicity

Kiana Brown Blog, podcast Leave a Comment

Synopsis: Christians say we should submit to the authorities, but what happens when some authorities use their power to abuse people? In this special episode, we visit the protests in person and hear from Christians on all sides – police officers, protesters and pastors – about the often complicated relationship between cops and the black community.

Featuring Aaron Griffith (God’s Law and Order).
